The Graduate

No, not the movie...our boy!
After 6 weeks of training, Gus has graduated from Puppy Kindergarten! And he has a certificate to prove it:
We decided to try and do this right and get him started early on training. But it was really more about training US. And the socialization part was really good for him too. There were about a dozen dogs, ages 4-6 months mostly, and from small to large.

Here Gus demonstrates the basic Sit!
And his other favorite, Down!For our final test, he had to complete an obstacle course (no problem!), find me after I hid from him and called his name, and then do the Sit and Down poses with only 1 command, in front of the trainer. And he did it all!

We have one smart puppy dog!

Hi Galadriel! Thanks so much for stopping by. That Farmgirl is something else, isn't she!

Yes, some may say I have a slight Disney obsession. I like to think it's just a mild interest. Hee hee. Gus and Max both say hi.

Hey Suzanne - yes he does, and he knows it! Max was jealous and demanded a brushing today to make sure he maintained his pretty factor to keep up :p

He's smarter than his Dad (at least, one of them...mmm...wonder which one?)
